Variable or Constant - College Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    Lets go through the terms, 1 by 1, to
    figure out what type each of them is. So
  • 0:05 - 0:09
    first we have y, y is not just a number,
    so that means it cant be a constant term.
  • 0:09 - 0:14
    And we also know, that y is a frequently
    used letter, to represent variables in
  • 0:14 - 0:19
    Algebra. So, y is a variable term. Then we
    have 3 million. There are no symbols,
  • 0:19 - 0:23
    other than numbers in this term. And
    we know that 3 million is a number, we
  • 0:23 - 0:28
    know how big it is already, so this has a
    constant value, that means that its a
  • 0:28 - 0:33
    constant term. And lastly we have negative
    -100,000x. Note that the negative sign
  • 0:33 - 0:37
    belongs with the term itself, so we dont
    say that the term is 100,000x, we say that
  • 0:37 - 0:43
    it is -100,000x, anyway, this term has two
    parts, it has a part with a number and a
  • 0:43 - 0:48
    part with a variable. As we talked about
    before though if a term has a variable in
  • 0:48 - 0:52
    it at all, then that term counts as a
    variable term. When we plug in numbers for
  • 0:52 - 0:58
    x -100,000x is going to change values
    because of what we plug in. So the whole
  • 0:58 - 1:02
    term despite have a number in it counts as
    a variable term.
